Although I don't really have anything to add to the real topic at hand, this is why I don't use the word "Poly" any more to describe my relationship with P. Without fail, I get the, "Oh, so that means you all..." with the "nudge nudge wink wink" look, and have to spend more time explaining what it's NOT than what it IS.

This is why I despise the Showtime/sensationalist stuff - it only reinforces this hawt3waysex stereotype. I personally don't want more of this type of "awareness". It just makes things more difficult when all I want is a damned relationship with the guy.

Dramatis personae:
Me: Mono. Divorced, two kids (DanceGirl, 14; and PokéGirl, 12), two cats, one house, many projects.
Chops: My partner. Poly. In relationships with me, Xena, and Noa.
Xena: Poly. In a relationship with Chops. Dating others.
Noa: Married, Poly. In a relationship with Chops.
